Protest at the G20

As well as the Put People First demonstration on Saturday 28th, there are other events through the week targeting the G20.

The leaders of the world's big powers will meet at the G20 summit in London next week. It will be Barack Obama's first visit to London and a chance to demand change from Bush's war policies.

The anti war demonstration at the G20 will assemble at the US Embassy at 2pm on Wednesday 1st April. An anti-war message will be handed into the US Embassy and then marching through central London as the world's leaders arrive.

Our message to Obama, and the leaders of the rest of the world, will be 'Yes We Can'. Yes we can end the siege of Gaza and free Palestine!  Yes we can get the troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan. Yes we can make jobs not bombs. Yes we can abolish nukes. Yes we can stop arming Israel.

For all these reasons Stop the War are asking all supporters to join this demonstration and publicise it as widely as possible. Stickers, postcards and posters are available from the Stop  
the War office on 020 7801 2768.

Amongst those speaking and performing in Trafalgar Square will be Tony Benn, Arthur Scargill, anti-debt campaigner Susan George, rapper Lowkey, Palestinian singer Reem Kolani and Daud Abdullah from the Muslim Council of Britain.

The demonstration is called by The Stop the War Coalition, CND, Palestine Solidarity Campaign, and British Muslim Initiative.

There will be transport from Plymouth – call Tony on 07803 620390 for details.


Stop the War has also called a protest at the Excel Centre at the Summit itself on Thursday. Starts at the Excel in East London at 11am.


The week of protests continues! Tens of thousands will be travelling from all over Europe to protest at the NATO meeting in Strasbourg. Stop the War is putting on coaches leaving  
Victoria Embankment at 6 am Friday April 3rd. Book your seat now online at or by phone on 020 7801 2768.

There will be a contingent from Plymouth attending all three events – contact Tony on 07803 620390 for more details.
